A Quick Pick From the Pumpkin Patch

This card was just a quick and easy card layout using the Pick of the Patch
 stamp set from Stampin' Up combined with a  wood panel designer paper.

The card base is 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, Scored at 4 1/4
Designer Paper Layer - 4 x 5 1/4 

Pumpkin Color Technique - stamp the pumpkin in the lightest color of 3 chosen colors. Use a finger dauber to add a mid tone color to areas of the stamp, and again to add the darkest color.  To avoid seams in the ink dab your finger where the 2 ink colors meet. Don't rub or smoosh it, just dab it. 

3 inch Vellum circle
1/2 in strip for the sentiment
Gold Twine, burlap ribbon or a ribbon of your choice. 

Attach the pumpkins to the vellum circle using dimensionals. 
Wrap the twine around your fingers a few times and attach to the card only adding glue where the sentiment strip will cover it.

Attach dimensionals to the back of one side of the sentiment strip and glue to the other, and adhere to card front as pictured.

The card inside - 4 x 5 1/4 layer of white cardstock
1/2 in strip of coordinating designer paper
Stamp a pumpkin or squash using the same technique used for the pumpkins.
Stamp a desired greeting, and attach the layer to the card inside.
